Alright then, and how much do those cost? Right know I have a phenom 2 X4 oc'd to 4.0 ghz, and it takes everything i throw at it, but I just want to know for future reference.
 
You should just get a 9xx series board.The 9xx series boards a fully capable of running every proccesor from AM3+ and AM3.The 8xx series boards are only capable of running Llano and Bulldozer processors.

The cheapest 9xx series boards right now are these 2.You'll have to wait a month or 2 if your looking for more of an entry level motherboard from the 9xx series.

Oh, really? Well then...still, my X4 has done pretty well thus far, so I will just wait until I absolutely need the Bulldozer
And by the way, do you know whether Bulldozer is using 32nm or 28nm architecture? Because I've heard both.
 
Yah it would.I only just found out yesterday about the 28nm design.Thats a HUGE step up from 40nm.Making me reconsider crossfiring my 6870.I might just save up a whole bunch of money and get a really big single card.They should be realsing somewhere around christmas too.
